If we are eating, let us also drink! There are records of vine-culture in Székesfehérvár from the Árpád era and from the 18th century we can find descriptions of press-houses along with the summer-house and the chapel of the bishop. Wine-cavalier order, wine queen, wine rarities, wine pass… “Give me wine, quick!”
The St. Stephen Wine-cavalier order of Noah Hill was founded at the ancient coronation place of our first king by 52 provincialists who enjoy wine. Their aim is to spread the culture of drinking wine and the revival of vine-culture around Székesfehérvár. At the 2013 Meeting of the Wine Order the “St. Stephen Jubilee Cuvée” wine rarity was introduced which filled only 975 numbered bottles in honour of St. Stephen.
The Wine-cavalier Order of Noah Hill can boast of members such as Zsuzsanna Vörös Olympic champion in pentathlon and Barbara Kiss who was the wine queen of 2013 and who was also the face and ambassador of Hungarian wine for a complete year. During the Székesfehérvár Kings Days in August the wine-cavaliers make a procession, too. Fehérvár is close to two historical wine-making regions. The wine cellars of Lake Velence and Mór can be easily reached. Get your wine pass for Mór in the Tourinform Office and in certain cellars you will be able to fill up your complimentary wine glass. Visit at least five wine cellars, collect five stamps and you will receive the certificate of being the “Friend of the Mór wine region”.
